The Foxconn, which manufactures Apple's iPhone and iPad, is reportedly hiring 9,000 more workers to meet the demands for its upcoming iPhone which is expected to debut in September.
The unit at Foxconn's Shenzhen complex in Guangdong Province requires more workers as the tech titan is prepping to launch its next generation iPhone in coming months, reported Focus Taiwan news channel, quoting its sources in Apple's supply chain.
"The world's largest contract electronics maker needs additional staff to deal with large orders from Apple for a new version of the iPhone," Focus Taiwan reported. Although the company is yet to confirm the report, the latest report seems to be holding some truth, as earlier reports had said that the Foxconn had started its hiring process for the upcoming iPhone.
It was reported earlier last week that Apple has asked Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (trading as Foxconn Technology Group) to be prepared for shipments of the iPhone by late August. It was also said that the Cupertino-based firm is testing big screen for iPhone and iPad.
Speculations about Apple's next iPhone and iPad have been doing the rounds for quite a while now. It was recently reported that the new iPhone will include fingerprint reader technology in its Home Button. If it rings true, the next iPhone will have a finger print technology which can be used to make mobile payments as well as to log into many apps like Facebook.
